Kuiper concept sketches

Concept design sketches I did when designing Kuiper the frog. He was half-way being made as a cartoon version of a friend of mine, so he helped decide on the final design. He liked the longer legs, otherwise Kuiper would have been stubby like the upper-right!

This image is his final design, and comparing to Nicolai in height.

Here are some even older images in the design process. It took a long time and a lot of sketches for me to be happy with the way I drew frogs.

This was the close to final design, minus scarf!


  1. Ah Kuiper. Everyone's favorite annoying sidekick character!

    Actually, the scarf is a good design choice!

  2. One of the best characters imo
